Berryz Koubou's 2008 calendar is perhaps the most understated of the 3 H!P calendars that I chose to buy this year but the girls still manage to present their fans with a cute calendar to grace your wall next year. The styling is more on the casual side but its simplicity is perhaps where the charm is found in this release. With the creativity put into this year's C-ute calendar I can only imagine how things may have turned out if Berryz Koubou had been allowed to invade the band room too! But the producers of BK's calendar obviously wanted to give them a more mature look and with that intention they've succeeded quite well.
Try to imagine a Berryz Koubou country house Summer picnic. Do you fancy a spot of tea?
This entire calendar stays with the theme of simplicity which includes the locations of the photos and each member is featured in a couple of different outfits throughout this release which can be best described as casually stylish with a touch of cuteness. September & October are my favorite months as Risakochan who never fails to look adorable is paired up with Kumaichan. Risakochan once again appears to be going for a sophisticated serious look in both of her month's photos or perhaps she just found out that Mr. "P" likes C-ute more than Berryz Koubou. :O Heheh just kidding! 😛
Interestingly the extra page included with this calendar is my favorite shot and it absolutely is designed like a stand alone poster. This is a really cute shot with the entire group and with group name & member's names listed bottom center it really does resemble a poster which could actually be framed.
